If you’re looking for the best wine bars in San Antonio in regards to wine selection, knowledgeable servers, and beautiful ambiance, it’s going to be pretty hard to beat High Street Wine Co. Located in the historic Pearl District, this lovely wine bar is a long, skinny restaurant with a bar, some small tables, and a charming outdoor patio that overlooks the bustling courtyard.

They source a highly-curated selection of wine, beer, and cider from around the globe. There’s a decent selection of sparkling, rose, white, red, orange, and aperitif & dessert wines available by the glass. High Street Wine Co also offers wine flights, which feature a curated tasting menu of three wines in one category, like red wines or sparkling wines. 

But if you’re a true wine nerd and want to find something really interesting to sip, dive head first into the long, dense bottle list. High Street offers wines at literally any price point, starting with delicious and affordable bottles in the $30 range all the way to 20-year-old Bordeauxs that will cost you upwards of $1,500. If you need to buy a bottle of wine to impress a client, High Street has options.

If you love the rock-and-roll side of wine and you’re looking for a more urban space to enjoy a great bottle of wine, you should check out Little Death Wine Bar. It’s a comfy, welcoming spot with a big outdoor space, a few long tables indoors, and a small counter where you can place an order for coffee (8 am - 1 pm) or wine. 

When you walk in, you’ll immediately notice the gorgeous display of bottles lining all the walls. This is definitely a bottle shop…but they have wine by the glass available, too. (Or you can purchase a bottle to drink here.) Little Death Wine Bar says that their goal is to provide wines you won’t find in the grocery store. If you’re heading to your in-law's house and trying to find a fun and unique gift to bring, this wine shop in San Antonio will have something really cool for you to buy.

3. Re: Rooted 210 Urban Winery

Re:Rooted Urban Winery

Thank goodness that wineries are becoming more and more accessible! Gone are the days of stuffy tasting rooms with a serious sommelier staring down his nose at you. Rerooted, an urban winery in Hemisfair Park in downtown San Antonio, believes that wine isn’t meant to stay tucked away in a dark cellar…it should be enjoyed!

They make their wines in Fredericksburg, TX, and then serve them here in San Antonio at their tasting room. They have a kegged wine system, which is very cool. It means you can enjoy a taste of wine, a full glass, or more. 

They also have a certified sommelier on staff. She worked in the fine dining industry in Chicago before moving to Texas and helping four different wine boutiques get their doors open. Now she’s here in SA ready to curate and flight of wine for you whenever you’re ready to stop by this San Antonio wine bar.

4. Sternewirth at Hotel Emma

You might see Sternewirth on a list of the best cocktail bars in San Antonio. (And it should be!) But did you know that this adorable bar located at Hotel Emma has a wonderful selection of wine, too? Of course, you’ll have to get past those cocktails on the first page of the menu. (Really, the cocktails here are SO good!). But once you get to the 5th or 6th page, you’ll find a good selection of wine. 

The white rose and red wine is all available in 5 oz (a glass), 8 oz (about ⅓ a bottle), and full bottle servings. The majority of their wine is from California, but they will occasionally have local options from here in Texas, as well as international wines from Argentina, Italy, and France. 

Sternewirth is a gorgeous bar with vaulted ceilings, deep leather sofas, and a sophisticated wooden bar. The vibe here is elegant and polished while also being cozy and comforting. It’s the type of place you could go on a date night…and not even realize you’ve fallen deep in conversation for the past three hours. Sternewirth feels a bit like you’re escaping the world and stepping into your own secluded space.

And while it’s not technically a wine bar, per se, it does check all the marks for what qualifies as one of the best wine bars in San Antonio: a beautiful ambiance, a good selection of wines, knowledgeable servers, and excellent hospitality.

5. Barbaro

We’ve talked about Barbara plenty of times, like in our guide to the best pizza restaurants in San Antonio and this round-up of great happy hours in San Antonio. And they really do have crazy good pizza and one of the best HH in SA…but it’s their rotating selection of wine that brings them to this list of best wine bars in San Antonio. 

Barbaro is a really beautiful and welcoming restaurant. The bar is a great spot to perch if you’re dining solo, but the little two-top tables are the perfect place to meet up with a friend and enjoy a bottle of wine and maybe split a pizza or two. 

Considering Barbaro is a pizza restaurant, you might assume most of their wine bottles are from Italy…and you wouldn’t be wrong. But there’s a decent selection from other regions, too, including Texas, France, Spain, California, Oregon, and Argentina. Most bottles here are in the $25-50 range. (You won’t find any $1500 bottles like you will at High Street Wine Co.) 

But if you visit Barbaro during happy hour, you’re going to have a hard time avoiding those $6 happy hour cocktails from 4-6 pm and 10 pm-midnight. Just saying.

6. Poetic Republic

date ideas in San Antonio

Poetic Republic is listed as a coffee shop and poetry-reading space, but they have a nice selection of natural wine available starting at 1-6 pm every day. You can enjoy a glass or a bottle in their shop, or purchase a bottle to bring home. 

Poetic Republic is different from other wine bars in San Antonio. The intention behind this space is to encourage customers to slow down, connect, and breathe. The weekly poetry readings here are a great way to connect with the literature community in SA. Check out their social media channels to see the current poetry reading lineup.

Of course, if you are looking for a place to get some work done in the afternoons and you want those “coffee shop vibes” but with a glass of natty wine instead of a cappuccino, Poetic Republic is for you. It’s the perfect hybrid of coffee shop + wine bar in San Antonio. {Psst: here are more amazing coffee shops in San Antonio.}

7. Hola Tapas Bar

You might have heard about this fun tapas restaurant in our guide to the best new restaurants in San Antonio. It’s an excellent spot to gather with a few friends for dinner and taste lots (and lots!) of different small plates of food. Enjoy Nuevo Latino cuisine paired with some really fun wines. 

Most of the wine options at Hola are available by glass or bottle. They source from regions around the globe, but most of the varietals are the types you would expect to see at a tapas bar: plenty of full-bodied reds, Spanish Tempranillo, a lighter Pinot Noir from California, and some hearty whites from Italy and California that can stand up to the spicy, flavorful, meat-forward cuisine that you’ll be enjoying all evening.

8. Park Bar at The Pearl

If you need an outdoor wine bar in San Antonio, head to the Pearl District, stop by the Park Bar (it’s the bar located inside their central food hall,) and order a glass of wine to enjoy out on the lawn. 

They actually have a pretty thorough selection of Texas wine available at Park Bar. It’s pretty cool that they work to source locally, so you’ll see wine represented by local wineries like William Chris, Pedernales, Becker Vineyards, Fall Creek, and lots more. 

Wine is available by the glass or the bottle. After you order your wine, feel free to bring it outside and enjoy it in the turf-covered open courtyard. It’s adjacent to a big splash fountain where little ones can run around in the water…just in case you’re in SA with kids.

9. Copa Wine Bar and Tasting Room

This European-style tasting room is going to be your go-to spot for sophisticated sips of domestic, European, and sparkling wines. They work to source rare bottles that you might not find at other wine bars in San Antonio. 

Copa has a pretty robust list of wine bottles, so if you’re not sure what you want, ask the team. They’ll help point you in the right direction based on your preferred tasting notes, style, and price point. 

You can also select one of their curated wine flights. They have 20+ of these! Each one consists of four pours of various wines in a single category, like different cabernets, 4 different Italian wines, or a selection of dessert wines.
